Quick Post: My Pownces, Let Me Show You Them

Posted on Wed 05 March 2008 in Dispatches • 1 min read

Heh, I had a little fun this afternoon writing a little Django app for my site that will regularly import my public Pownce notes and allow me to display them in the sidebar. It’s really just a modified version of the app I’m using for my Twitter statuses, except that it has some additional logic for handling the different types of Pownce notes.

The thing I’m most happy about is that if I post a public Pownce event, it will display the event with the appropriate microformat markup. Events also include a link to a Google Map of the location, as well as a link to an iCal file for the event. Those last two are provided for free by the Pownce API, so it just seemed to make sense to use them.

Eventually, the look will get redesigned as I redo this site’s design, but for now I’m pleased with it.

Happy Powncing!
